Paper Abstract

The holo-diagram is a diagram originally designed as a tool for teaching the making and evaluation of holograms. It was soon found to include much more general uses than first expected. During the 20 years since its introduction this diagram has been applied to explain many different fields, such as holography, interferometry, diffraction, Fermat's principle, light-in-flight recordings, three-dimensional measurements with ultrashort light pulses, and the special theory of relativity.
